Pears x3


I still paint on my kitchen table.  And, I continue to build my still life series from things I find around my house.  Frequently, I just pull things out of my fruit bowl, since we all love fruit--bosc pears, especially.

This series of paintings was done in natural light.  I find the mood of the painting is determined by the condition of the light, and it was a gray day, so the light is very indistinct from overhead.    (Frankly, it's been a cold, gray, depressing spring.) 

It's the same pear done in three color sets.  The linking color is phthalo blue gs (Daniel Smith).  The paintings are all approximately 6x8 inches, and they reflect my thoughts on this spring.
